Drack Research Logo immortalized in stained glass by lab student

Our lab logo is very special to us--we developed it with a designer hoping to incorporate the ideas of genetics and electrophysiology with the beauty of the human eye, and used an actual ERG waveform recorded from Dr. Drack’s daughter’s eye as the central feature. Now, thanks to very talented undergrad (and future physician) Megan Helms, we have a beautiful symbol of our research. Megan has always been interested in glass work, but only began practicing stained glass this past year. She enjoys working on small window pieces and ornaments in her free time. This piece was the largest and most ambitious she has completed, to date. She credits much of her creative ability to her father, an avid woodworker, who also helped her frame the finished piece.
